Full Details

Ground Floor
Enter through the pretty front porch with apex roof into a welcoming entrance hall with stairs to first floor. To the right of the entrance hall is a spacious kitchen/dining room with a range of fitted wooden fronted base cupboards with worksurface over. Set into an alcove is a range cooker with wooden lintel over. The kitchen has much character with period features and tiled floor. On the opposite side of the entrance hall is a door to a snug/sitting room with attractive period fireplace and wooden floor. Continue through to a lounge measuring some 31ft/9.66m in length with wooden ceiling beam, windows to front flooding the room with light, an impressive stone fireplace housing a wood burning stove. A wrought iron spiral stair case leads from the lounge to two of the first floor bedrooms. To the rear of the lounge, through a stone arch, is a useful study.

The ground floor accommodation is completed by a splendid garden room with views across the garden and to the countryside beyond. The house has an abundance of period features, character and is very much a family home which has been much loved for the past 30 years.

First Floor
5 bedrooms, one en-suite plus family bathroom all with much character and period features. Accessed via two staircases, one from the entrance hall, the second from the lounge.

The private, mature gardens complement the house and offer several seating areas from which the views can be enjoyed. The property is approached via a wooden 5 bar gate giving access to a substantial parking and turning area. The generous, private gardens lie to the rear of the house and are a haven for wildlife. The front of the house adjoins the lane with a parking space. The house is approached from the driveway, up a set of shared stone steps to the front patio and pretty front porch. The gardens have been created over the past 30 years and comprise a number of mature plants and trees including roses, rhododendrons, hydrangeas, fuchsias, acers and a beautiful magnolia tree. There is a vegetable garden, greenhouse, summer house, small orchard and 3 patios.

The property is situated in the village of Clydach which is a short drive to the larger village of Gilwern within the Brecon Beacons National Park (Bannau Brycheiniog). The village sits amidst stunning scenery and is located close to footpaths for the spectacular Clydach Gorge. Gilwern has a range of local amenities including convenience stores, hairdressers, public houses, doctor’s surgery and a well-regarded primary school. The area is renowned for its beautiful countryside, offering a range of activities including walking, horse riding, paragliding and cycling. The nearby Monmouthshire & Brecon Canal offers access to level walks along the towpath and narrow boats can be hired to enjoy the scenery at a gentler pace.
